Kneipp Herbal Bath Valerian & Hops Sweet Dreams Bath Oil, $20 at Amazon - Pour a capful of the cobalt-blue-hued oil into a hot bath and take deep breaths as you enter a progressively more catatonic state. The oil combines valerian and hops (the flavoring agent in beer), which are both natural sleep aids. It smells like an invigorating yet peaceful blend of lemon and lavender, and it colors your bathwater — but not your skin — a pleasing shade of sapphire blue.
